Reviewed 27 February 2012

They made it so easy for all of us to stay at the same place and breakfast was amazing. All though my daugter did not get married at the hotel they still assisted all of us. Great staff!!

The hotel itself is adequate and has good facilities but after a 2 day stay here with my boyfriend in January, we found the service (both on the front desk and the managers) to be lacking.

Specifically, in one instance, we got back to the hotel late and called the night manager/chef and tried to order toasted sandwiches off their 24 room service menu only to be told abruptly and sarcastically that they had no ingredients to make anything and to go off and find a McDonalds. Yuk! (I found out later that the closest one was about 15 mins away). If they weren’t serving a full menu that evening, they should’ve had a sign up for guests to see as they were leaving for the evening.

Unfortunately, we won’t be returning

Room Tip: Ask for a king size bed when booking

Agree motel units need updating but a very handy location and an onsite restaurant was very handy.

Our stay included breakfast at La Patio café at the hotel, which was very nice. Eggs were made to order. Agree, the motel units need updating. The room we stayed in was safari themed, with stripey wallpaper closing what was actually a good sized room right in. I understand the idea behind it - but just a feature wall would suffice. We had a noisy night with party-goers returning at 4am - obviously out of control of the hotel, but worse was hearing the retching (as they paid for the night before) in the morning!

I couldn't understand why this hotel is only rating 9 of 12. Our family had a very pleasant time in here.

We stayed in a standard hotel room. Our room was spacious and bright. Bed was comfortable. Staffs are friendly. Free WiFi, free washing machine, free dryer and only one dollar for purchase laundry power. The breakfast was one of the best hotel buffet ones we have had. Would definitely recommend.
